  1. Great work - how about some pics in the dark showing the lighting? TT
  2. I wonder if this partnership makes the Denford ridiculed Spti TR.9 possibility more, or less, likely https://uk.airfix.com/community/blog-and-news/news/airfix-partners-spitfirescom
  3. I think there is a thread but its a lovely subject - I just hope they do a BAC Swallow version - given the number of Fox and Puss variants I'd say it's a safe bet - I do like their kits! TT
  4. Super job well done - must get round to mine! TT
  5. It’s just a part on the left, and part on the right, put some glue on the lips and clamp the two parts tight…
  6. Ooh that’s a bit of fun. The ‘waterline option’ much like they do with ships is jolly clever TT
  7. I’m still surprised they haven’t done a Ferret in either 1/48 or 1/35- literally a global series of options for markings… TT
  8. Well that’s not quite true, for example their Messenger has an acceptable Injection canopy not a vac one.. but I take your point!
  9. I think AZ are heavily involved with Pavla now and may have taken over their moulds ie their Messenger etc? TT
  10. God bless Sova, Avis and the lot of them. Proof positive that ventilation in your workshop is a good idea Love it TT
  11. Whilst I've no doubt that it will be an uberkit -at $109 USD+ = £95.00+ tis a funny old world when Airfix have been getting online stick for a £70 1/48 Bucc which is roughly the same size give or take (35cmx30 v 40x28cm) and 1/24 Spit which is appreciably bigger for the same price! TT
  12. Thanks to the mods for moving my post to the correct place! BTW I forgot one- the 1/48 Hunter had FR10 glazing IIRC so perhaps that will be released but I note they still have plenty of F4s left in the current range …
  13. Beg your pardon, didnt see it - can the mods kindly do their 'thing'? Many thanks TT
  14. Well with the nights starting to draw in and Autumn on its way it must be time to start this annual collection of gossip and rumour! So to 2023 - Potential reboxings/new decals 1/72 Meteor F8 Aussie/PR - the parts are on the sprue 1/48 Blackburn Buccaneer RAF/Gulf -inevitable but when? 1/48 DHC Chipmunk 'Foreign Users'? - normally they squeeze at least one more boxing of a 1/48 machine out... 1/48 DH Tiger Moth 'CivilIan Users?' not done yet, they did so with their 1/72 1/72 DH Mosquito TT35? again parts are there 1/72 Bristol Beaufort - second boxing? 1/72 Avro Vulcan Black Buck? - pretty likely Could we see a reboxing of the 1/48 Hawker Fury as G-FURY? Also might the previously heralded reissue of the 1/48 DH Sea Vixen reappear - or indeed the clamoured for 1/48 EE Lightning? Vintage Classics Be interesting to see what people think might be likely here.. Bond Bug? The Beach Buggy seemed to have been a hit SA Bulldog (but see below) Piper Cherokee? Bristol Bloodhound? Rotodyne? F-84? SRN.1? New Tools 1/72 Cold War Jet of some sort - maybe a Jaguar? 1/72 - Supermarine Spitfire TR9 - they've never done a twintub and I go back to my previous 'rumouring' that a friend saw a built up example at Airfix HQ some years ago - see also the large number of warbird operators who fly them now - with either the original rear canopy or 'Grace/Melton' conversion 1/48 Propeller driven aircraft - maybe a Gannet if they want to keep their Naval theme going? 1/48 Auster - already mentioned on Rumourmonger... 1/72 Fairey Battle - as previously mentioned in other years? 1/72 Canberra - time for a new tool? 1/72 Avro Lincoln - also rumoured but did they sell sufficient Shacks to warrant another 4 engined beastie? Failing that a B-24? Finally given their successful Bomber Command and USAAF ground sets - which IMHO were excellent -surely a Cold War RAF Ground Support set or a Luftwaffe one could be in the works? Would they try and seek their previous trainer successes by newly tooling a Bulldog or even coming up to date with a Tutor for the Air Cadet dollar? Be interested to see what people think - for me any highlight would be a 1/48 Auster or the twintub Spit (obvs) to Airfix (not AZ) standard - surely just a new fuselage.... though I would find home for a Cherokee Over to you! TT
